The Christmas Train - I Think I Can

November 30, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

A little engine makes every effort to deliver Christmas toys ...

This is a cute story about a little train engine that helps a large train get back on track to deliver holiday gifts to children on the other side of a mountain. Perseverance pays off in this sweet Christmas tale. The app itself is solidly made & features a unique kind of interactivity based on the print 'magic ink' books. In digital form, these titles are a lot of fun, with each page containing two images and text - simply swipe your finger over the grey-scale page to reveal a second colorful page that triggers additional text. Otherwise the app is not especially enhanced, but has a great story, nice illustrations and quality narration to go along with the 'magic'.

This title is one of over two dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post in our blog for the winter holidays, 2011.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
